Szechwan is a style of Chinese Cuisine originating from Sichuan province in southwestern China.It has bold flavours,and particularly the spiciness resulting from liberal use of garlic and chillies.Most of the Szechwan dishes are spicy.
As I said I will be back with the great combo for chilly prawns,this one is perfect.Look at that red colour of the rice.Its coming from the Szechwan sauce used in it.Its spicy and yummy.Here I used only vegetables,if you want you can also use chicken and prawns.
Szechwan sauce is a must in this recipe,or else you can use red chilly paste.For making this first saute garlic and sauce in oil and then cook veggies.Its very simple to make.For making red chilly paste.blanch some dry red chillies and the drain the water and grind it.Use as needed.This will also give a bright red colour to your rice.
